Egyptian Mythology Book Tag

I adore mythology and people seemed to really enjoy my Norse Mythology Book Tag, so I figured I would post my Egyptian one as well. If there are any mythologies that you really love and would like me to tackle, be sure to let me know! I’d love to research them and try to create a tag. If you want this to become a semi-regular thing, I could tackle a new mythology each month and create a tag for it?


The Rules:

  • Link back to my original post on Kyera’s Library so I can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
  • Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
  • Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
  • Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!

Amun-Ra.png

Amun-Ra – Character Who Enthusiastically Involves Themselves In Everybody’s Business

Ra is the falcon-headed sun god, the creator and he named five of his fellow gods.

Iko from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Sobek (1).png

Osiris – Favourite Down-to-Earth Male Character

Osiris is the god of death, farming, and vegetation.

Prince Kai from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Isis.png

Isis – Favourite Female Character with Powers

Isis is the goddess of magic and fertility, as well as being the mother goddess.

So tough to choose between Hermione and Nina, ugh.  They’re both amazing, but I think I have to go with Hermione.Anubis.png

Anubis – Character You Wish You Could Bring Back From the Dead

Anubis took over as guardian of the underworld from his father, so he is the god of the afterlife and death.

SPOILERS BELOW

You’ve Been Warned.

Last Chance.

Dumbledore from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Set.png

Set – A Character That is More Devious Than the Actual Villain

Set is the god of darkness, chaos, and storms.

Professor Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

She is legit the worst.

Hathor.png

Hathor – Quote That Brightens Your Day

Hathor is the cow goddess of motherhood, joy, happiness, music, and love.

Anything said by Jace Herondale from the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Neith.png

Neith – Character You Wish You Could Receive Life Advice From

Dumbledore from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Ma'at.png

Basically all of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir?

Horus.png

Horus – Favourite Bright/Cheery Book Cover

Horus is the god of light and the sky, as well as the god of the Pharaohs.

 

THoth.png

Thoth – Book With the Most Beautiful Prose

Thoth is the god of wisdom, writing, magic and the moon.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I just love her writing style.

Ptah.png

Ptah – Best World Building

Ptah is the creator and craftsman of the gods.

The world that J.K Rowling builds in Harry Potter has to be the most intricate, especially because there’s so much development that goes on behind the scenes that you don’t always get to see – but maybe one day will end up on Pottermore. It’s incredible.

Khonsu.png

Khonsu – Book You Wish You Could Read for the First Time Again

Khonsu is the god of time and the moon.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I mean I don’t want to lose growing up with the series, but it’s always wonderful to see someone experience your favourite series for the first time and at least for me, I’m curious what it would be like.

Sobek.png

Sobek – Book You Would Save From Drowning (Possibly Over Another Person, No Judgement)

Sobek is the god of the Nile and water.

I don’t know if I could choose just one book, but if I had to at least narrow it down I would say one of my special books that were either limited edition (like the Waterstones Lady Midnight, which only was about 1,000 copies?) or signed by the author in my presence (so I also have a memory of the author associated with them).


I Tag:

The usual suspects, Mandy from Book Princess Reviews, Shanah from Bionic Book Worm and Rendz from Reading with Rendz – because they are awesome, I know they will do the tag (eventually) and they are beloved here in the book blogging community so I know it will be shared. And if you love mythology or just doing book tags, feel free to also do this tag and share it with your readers! I would appreciate it!


Did I miss one of your favourite Egyptian deities? I know there were some that I had originally and just couldn’t think of a good prompt for them, so they ended up being cut. Sorry.

    This is one unique tag! And I can see that you are an avid Potter fan 😀

    I haven’t read any of Rowling’s books (I know, I am missing out) but I’ll give them a try in the future when I’ve saved up!

    Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, this was fantastic, Kyera! You always come up with just the most unique things. I knew from the moment I saw it today that it had to be something that came from your mythology queen head. Um, I totally would LOVE this to be a thing. Could you do Celtic mythology? That would be so much fun.

    As for your answers, they were great! Iko and Kai were just brilliant answers. I’m totally going to have to steal Iko for that answer, I think.Overall, this was just great, Kyera, as always, and you have the most creative tags you create! 😀 (lol, my brain is so tired that I have no clue what that last part really means but we’ll go with it)

      Thank you lovely 💜💜💜 I would love to do a Celtic one! I will just warn you that I probably won’t post it for moooonths (just like this one which I started right after I made the Norse one and finally posted it.)

        Ahahahahahaha, oh, I feel you, Kyera. I shall eagerly be awaiting the day it will arrive…whether that’s months and months from now or not. XD Celtic mythology does seem quite hard that it would be do.

    First off: AMAZING TAG! Egyptian mythology and deities have always been so interesting to me. I always find myself attracted to learning more about them, and I love the prompts that you’ve matched with each god or goddess. I definitely agree with Mandy, you should make a series of mythology tags!
    Secondly: I feel like “they will do this tag (eventually)” was a direct hit at me because you know I suck at keeping up with tags XD

      In middle school, I LOVED Greek and Egyptian mythology most of all. Any requests once I finish the Celtic one?

      Definitely not! I know we all get behind on tags (I actually made a draft post just to keep track of the ones I have to do because I was getting so behind with school.) I honestly added it because I felt the “they will do this tag” sounded pushy like I expected it done immediately and I wanted to be like, ‘I know you’re busy and will get to it one day and that’s all I want’ – you know? Promise, no shots were fired.

        Hehe ummm there are so many to choose from! I recently started really looking up a lot on Aztec, Inca and Mayan mythology. I would love to see a tag on either of those, maybe hit me up and I’ll help out as a joint tag thingy! I don’t know a lot, but would love to help!

        And its good to know you lightened the pressure to do this, but I really am excited to do it!

        I absolutely love all three of those as well, although Mayan might be my favorite of the three – they are all amazing. It’s one of those things where out of 100 your favorite might be 100, but all the ones after it are still in the 90s. I have a few different mythology books at my house so I am going to have to look through them before I just deep dive into the Internet. But I would love to do a joint tag!
